India represents one of the oldest civilisations of the world and offers rich cultural heritage and variety. India is more remarkable for her extreme diversity of physical features. Its population represents a veritable museum of races representing almost all ethnic groups of the world with their characteristic features. Nature and history both have made India one of the most attractive tourist countries of the world. It offers everything in a rich variety of mountains and hills, valleys, highest peaks, sea beaches, landscape, scenic beauty, monuments and memorials, traditional art and dances, fairs and festivals and many other things have made the country a mosaic of living traditions. Tourism needs variety and India with its vast dimensions and diversity offers to every class of visitors something not found elsewhere.
